Beats me. Not sure how you can get historical intraday data from EOD data. Far better to get intraday data from another provider and use it to develop your concept, rather than try to pull it out of EOD data.

Because you have set the minimum trade size to be larger than your account balance (once the loss is accounted for). Since there is no way for the account to grow without trading, and you have set a minimum trade size larger than your current equity, it cannot enter any more trades.

I hope that at least a few folks looked at this ... Should signal a buy when the HVZscore crosses back below 2.

In on CDTI - 2000 shares at my limit price of 3.15.

++++++++

Hit my profit target - out at 3.30. Maybe could have let this run a bit more but I'm fine with 4.7% in less than 2 days.

Kevin, could you elaborate more on the RPTT system? Would you recommend it? Thanks....


++++++++++

The RPTT system is more of a tactical trading setup than it is a way to grow your account. Think of a sniper versus a coordinated move by a ground force. In the former case you are picking a few trades a week, and occasionally a day or two comes along where there are lots of candidates (like last week). I usually look for long-only systems that mean-revert, so the basis for Connors' systems are of interest to me.

Mostly I look for RPTT candidates that have been doing well but are suddenly down 8+%. The general rules are simple - the stock is trending upwards and above its' 200 day MA, with reasonable volume over the past 30 days or so (I use over 1,000,000 shares traded daily).

I would NOT recommend spending $1999 for the system, as it is similar to many overbought filters already posted here in the forums for free.

Occasional trade update:

I got into UNIS on Friday afternoon at 4.00 (1000 shares), only to watch it drop a few percent before closing at 3.98. I put in a profit stop at 4.15 yesterday which just got hit.

Another successful trade using my variation on Connors' RPTT system - and yes, ALF, it was the result of backtesting and optimization using Stratasearch.

Agreed, although the pure backtested system would have you in AGG. Given that April is historically the best month for stocks (or at least in the top 2), you are probably smart in holding in equities versus bonds.

My personal choice is the go risk on for another month, based on the recent sell off (especially in small and mid cap stocks) that should recover this month.
